Government Response to Home Affairs Committee Report: ‘Anti-Semitism in the UK’

Anti-Semitism continues to be a problem in this country and it is right that as a Government we are able to demonstrate the seriousness with which we take it, as we do for other forms of hate crime. Anti-Semitism must be understood for what it is – an attack on the identity of people who live, contribute and our valued in our society. Our relationship with the Jewish community has been built on the solid work of the cross-Government working group on tackling anti-Semitism which ensures that we are alive to any issues and concerns of the Jewish community and can respond quickly.

The Home Affairs Select Committee report’s recommendations are in the main addressed to political parties and their leadership. This response focuses on the recommendations made to Government.
